EXCELLENT UNIT FOR THE PRICE, BUT YOU'LL NEED TO ORDER A NECESSARY PART
24 November 2014
Summary: We absolutely LOVE this processor (its heavy-duty, well-made, etc.), but its got a relatively rare and dedicated "Dough" button, yet it doesn't ship with an all-plastic dough blade?!@#$%&? Why? That makes no sense. We had to contact Cuininart directly and get them to ship us the part separately, which should NOT have been necessary.
Summary: I have had this for over a year now. Will chop 11 cups dry maybe. Works well for processing for dry to semi- dry foods, vegetables, meat, salads, cheese, coleslaw etc. It will only hold 2 (TWO) cups of liquid successfully. The center post is very short and making soup will splash down the center and make a mess everywhere. For liquids this is the worst I have ever owned. Don't be fooled by the stainless advertizing, It is all plastic with a stainless cosmetic cover.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for a DLC 8 Plus. As this is an 11 cupper all the attachments I bought her over the years fit. My wife is very happy with this replacement. The only issue I have is that after I purchased this I saw this same unit at Costco for #132 which included 3 attachments and the box for holding the attachments.
Summary: LOVE THIS THING! My household is very produce heavy! We go through fruits, veggies, and beans like crazy. I usually have an entire day set aside just to prep all the veggies for the week. I get blisters on my knife hand! I have had processors before, but they never really performed as well I needed them to based on the mess and space they use. I have a small kitchen, getting counter space means you work and the chef loves you!
Summary: Needed a second food processor in our busy home kitchen. First time out of the box I chopped raw, fresh carrots, green beans and cabbage into small chunks and put them into the bowl. The machine chopped them into very fine particles, exactly what I wanted. But the blade wouldn't come off the shaft and out of the bowl without a tough struggle.
Summary: I love it but I have had a couple of problems, it overheated while kneading a bread dough, it was not overloaded I don't think, it was a recipe that used 3 cups of flour. It can be very hard to clean after mixing dough as it can get all up under the blade and I have to painstakingly pick it out of a little hole with a toothpick. I have been making sure I add the dry ingredients first then slowly add the liquids but it still does it.
Summary: I'd been using a GE food processor that was gift back in the mid-1970s. When it started making strange noises I began thinking about a replacement. Did lots of review reading and kept coming back to the Cuisinart brand. Then I had to decide what size would be best for my needs. Settled on this Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB 11-cup model. Wish I had made the move sooner! It's amazingly fast, easy to use, and easy to clean. Haven't used the "dough blade" yet, but plan to soon.
Summary: Previously I had other brands of food processors, parts of which broke fairly early on and did not do a great job. So I decided to invest in a Cuisinart this time. I have not been disappointed. I keep this on the counter because I use it several times a week for chopping, grating, slicing and mixing. This food processor and my Vitamix are among my favorite tools and make food prep, cooking and baking a breeze.
Summary: As a technologically challenged person (meaning I don't read the directions carefully enough) I Almost broke this the first time I used it. Luckily a friend was with me and saw that I had the cover on backwards. Yes, I did watch the video, but it really didn't get into the stupid details that I need to have. Enough about me, the processor works great. I tried making fake soft serve ice cream, using only fruit. You don't have to buy that $50 device.
Summary: I've owned this processor for just over 3 years and rarely used it, I decided to chop up some peanuts to make peanut butter and the motor stopped working. I've spend a week back and forth via email with customer service trying to get information on how to have it repaired or replaced since one of the main selling points was a 10 year warranty on the motor.
